Game w/ Final Countdown Scenario - 10/16/2013 9:34:18 AM

I am trying to recall the name of an old DOS Pacific War game that had a scenario of the situation that appears in the movie "Final Countdown", where the 1941 Japanese fleet that attacked Pearl Harbor is discovered and attacked by a modern Nimitz battle group. (Yeah I know it didn't happen in the movie but it does in the game). My recollection is that the name of the game was "PacWar" but I can't find any reference to the game. Does anyone remember the name of the game? Or possibly have it in a closet somewhere?
Thanks.

I don't believe that there is the ending that you are thinking of in this game however, unless there is a mod that does that.

War in the Pacific and War in the Pacific AE could have scenarios that emulate this but as a long term forum member for these games I'm unaware what they are

I did a quick search for you and found this for
Carriers at war ...

Fully expandable with the Warcard system for DYO scenarios. Most scenarios include at least one "what-if". As in Carriers at War, the A/C and the Nimitz are available for a "Final Countdown" scenario. Unlimited options available, you just have to program them.

I think this scenario was also incorporated into Carriers at War.

Yes it was in Carriers at War - not the early 1980s one - or the 2008 one but the one released in the 1990s by SSG - and don't get too excited about it - I only bothered to play it once and it was ridiculous - you had at least 3 times the range of the Japanese carrier planes so their carriers could not even get close and you could fly and bomb their carriers at night and sink them - plus you had radar and they didn't - so the whole thing was no challenge at all like a Panzer tank attacking a guy with a spear. I'm a fan of the movie but this was just way too lopsided.
